you know murphy is so dayum old that he needs to kick the bucket other than all my past upgrades that all took alot of finess due to stupid crap that never works right..... it doesnt stop... so now I put my new column in... 85 in a 78..... high beams and wipers on column work... washers and horn dont not a biggie... washers are on a switch and who needs a horn when your tires hum louder than a locomotive so I did the hydraulic clutch conversion.. other than taking 4 nights to try and get the tranny back in all went I guess ok.... however bleeding this biatch is not going good.... my old mechanic finally said... you push the pedal down... hold... crack bleeder... then close bleeder... let pedal up and push down and repeat steps.. do not pump... so I did this last night and alot of fluid (no air from what I saw or heard) came out.... well get in truck... start it up.. and try and put in gear..... will only engage if I MASH the pedal to the floor and slam it into gear.... let clutch out and it engages within 1/4" of releasing the pedal Is that right???? so anyway I was going to get gas since it was low..... put it in gear and turn on the headlights... well I had the door open and the interrior light went off.... I was like... huh.. oh well..... but then realizing my fuel pump was not on... loud chattery type ..... she just died.... so got under the dash and looked around.. jiggled the entire wire harness and the light came back on... truck wouldnt start and I still couldnt hear the pump... so I took the pump out of ignition and put it into 2 other ignition spots...no go.. put it into battery.... well viola... got fuel pump back... oh yeah all my gauges stopped working... not one... volt meter is pegged down below 8, oil psi is in the middle, fuel gauge is at 1/2 with full tank, temp pegs past 260 degrees....... they all worked before I changed the column and clutch if it aint one thing it is another.... this is driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!! so tonight im going to cleanup the garage some.... pickup all my tools and cleanup the hell hole of a mess from lifting a 1998 4 door blazer in my driveway last weekend..... then tear the harness apart and figure what the hell happened... wonder if it would have anything to do with the column??? but doesnt the ignition parts of the fuse block feed from the starter????...... with my winch on the way it would be nice to get something done right!!!!!!
